"Homer City Plant Must Meet Lower Emissions Limit"

"GE Energy Services' coal-fired power plant in Homer City will be required to meet federal standards for emissions of sulfur dioxide that are more protective of human health."

"The state Department of Environmental Protection announced in the Pennsylvania Bulletin last week that the power plant in Indiana County would be required to limit sulfur dioxide emissions to 6,360 pounds an hour, correcting a clerical mistake in the 1,884-megawatt facility's existing permit.

The DEP first imposed the sulfur dioxide limits, which equal the federal one-hour standard for sulfur dioxide controls, in April after reviewing company emissions projections as part of a settlement to a lawsuit by Earthjustice and the Sierra Club."
